And it has the Alamo, the cradle of Texas liberty. The story of the battle of the Alamo, and the brave men who gave their lives there for Texas independence, is something every patriotic American should be familiar with, and proud of.



Yep. Tennessee has a very heavy investment in Texas.

Another bit of Texas trivia:

In Big Bend National Park there is an area where astonauts trained for the Moon landing. I forget the name of the canyon area, but it was supposed to have terrain as close to the Moon's as possible.

Wife's cousin died at the Alamo - he was susposed to set off the powder magazine but died before he could. My cousin held benefits in NY for the Texas Navy so they could get their ships out of hock. Always wanted to join the Texas Navy.
